Today, in just win, baby

Tom Herman hired former Baylor football staffer Casey Horny, who was among several at Baylor who took to defending his former boss on Twitter, something that many UT fans found troubling, to say the least.

Well, not to worry, peeps.  Texas athletic director Mike Perrin has investigated the matter and pronounced it resolved.

Texas athletic director Mike Perrin said in a statement Tuesday that the hiring of former Baylor football staffer Casey Horney “is in total alignment with our culture of integrity.”

How was this accomplished?  It was easy, once Perrin identified the real problem.

“Like others, I question coach Horny supporting some commentary on social media,” Perrin said. “After further discussion with coach Horny, he understands such actions will not be tolerated at Texas.”

Only in the world of college football could social media be seen as a bigger cultural threat than sexual assault.

    Baylor had a staffer named Coach Horny? Sheesh. I guess it could be worse. The guy could have been on staff at Penn State under Paterno. Name changes are inexpensive, bruh.

    It would have been a lot cooler if Coach Horny was driving that train at TCU.

    Texas didn’t need the money bad enough to sanctimoniously fine him for someting that happened at another school.

    Hook ’em Horny.

      that’s just bad financial management right there. Luckily for UGA, Ebeneezer McGarity is on the case. Sanctimony and penury go together like peas and carrots for that guy.

    It’s not what happens that matters. It’s what you say about what happens that matters. Probably time to re-read 1984.

  5. Anyone that blames Briles or any other coach at Baylor is is extremely ignorant. The fact is the coaches have zero control of the players when they are not in practice, meetings or playing the game. We have become a society of blame. Sometimes the kid that did it is the only one at fault. Briles is a good man and I truly hope he gets another chance.

              Get real. Briles wins games. He will be the HC at a Power 5 program by 2018 sanctimonious comments by the peanut gallery notwithstanding. So you guys can thump your chests with righteous indignation all you want. Nobody gives a shit what you think or say. Get used to disappointment.

                      Let me start by saying that I have to hold my nose as I write this because I hate Jan Kemp. That’s right. Hate. But that doesn’t change reality. You seem to think that the Statute of Limitations has run on the Jan Kemp matter. Might I remind you the Kemp matter was an academic scandal which for a college is a lot worse than a coach looking the other way in a player sex scandal. We saw the latter happen at FSU and nobody did a damn thing–even now–and nobody at the NCAA or ACC even gave a damn. My point is that in a college the academic scandal of warehousing players in remedial education just to keep them eligible to play (without them having even a remote chance of earning a meaningful degree) is worse because it is premeditated and it goes to the heart of what a college is supposed to be all about–academics. Not to mention that it happened a second time at Georgia, that time with the basketball program. So feel free to point fingers at others for their transgressions if you so choose. Just remember the line “let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” We’ve had plenty of sin of our own. Briles personally didn’t rape anybody himself. Dooley and Fred Davidson personally were up to their eyeballs in the Kemp thing.

                    • You’ve missed my entire point.

                      I am embarrassed by what Kemp disclosed. I am outraged at what the Harricks did. Neither of those causes me to have a problem objecting to what Art Briles enabled at Baylor. And why should they?

                      Somehow, you seem to be boiling it down to academic fraud being a greater sin that sexual assault. That’s certainly your call to make, but it doesn’t make those with a different value system than yours hypocrites.

                      By the way, “Briles personally didn’t rape anybody himself” may be the single most stupid comment I’ve seen from you here, Mayor.

                      You have your opinion and I have mine. At least I don’t call any of your comments stupid even when I think they are. What I found offensive about the posters above was the personal attacks that they made on ftmyersdawg (“stupid” and “dumbest thing I’ve ever read”) because they didn’t agree with what he said. But, then, they are just following the example set by you. See above as the latest version. How about a little decorum from the blogmaster? It might help reign in everybody else.

                      FWIW you are probably right that what I said about Briles not raping anybody was a stupid comment. However, the stupidest comment I’ve ever written on this blog? Sorry but there are so many to choose from I cannot narrow it down to just one. Let’s just leave it as one of the stupidest. 🙂

      I read Horny’s (yeah, that’s funny) deleted tweet. Is there anything there that’s not factual? I’ve read some, but certainly have not done “research” on all of the actual facts at Baylor. But from what I can tell, the accusations against Briles seem to center on the fact that the victim told him, directly or indirectly, about the incident and that he did not further report it, and then whether he was asked not to report it by the victim. Consider this my GAS method of research (Go Ask Someone).

      There is a witch-hunt, find a person to blame and fire them mentality. And then the subsequent use of “shaming” or humiliation of any person – by calling them racist, sexist, etc. – that has the audacity to question whether there was really a violation or failure of the person targeted for blame

      Reference the Missouri “scandal” when the university president stepped down under pressure when he did absolutely nothing wrong. I don’t know if that witch-hunt mentality applies to the Briles situation, but I wouldn’t be surprised. I think that’s what FMD is referencing.
